directory-encoder Build Status

Filament Group

Encode a directory of PNG or SVG images to CSS

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install directory-encoder

var DirectoryEncoder = require('directory-encoder');
var de = new DirectoryEncoder( source, destinationCSSFile, {
			pngfolder: pngfolder, //in case you need to link out for PNGs, like when the datauri is way too long
			customselectors: { "foo": [".bar", ".baz"]}, 
			prefix: ".icon-", // used to prefix the name of the file for the CSS classname, .icon- is the default
			templatePrepend: "/* start of icon-list */", // this string is prepended to the destinationCSSFile, defaults to ""
			handlebarsCallback: function(hbs) { /* configure handlebars, with custom helpers for example */ }, // callback to configure handlebars
			template: template.hbs, //template in handlebars, FANCY!
			templateAppend: "/* end of icon-list */", // this string is appended to the destinationCSSFile, defaults to ""
			noencodepng: false // turn this to true if you want no datauris for pngs, just links out to png files
		});
de.encode(); // "Guitar solo -- File outputted"

Documentation

Constructor

Takes three arguments, source directory for encoding/an array of files you'd like to encode, destination css file for when it writes, and an options hash that includes a spot for customselectors, a hbs template in case you want to get nuts with your css, where the pngs are located if you want to link out to them (or you don't have a choice because the data uri is bigger than 32k), and a switch to turn off datauris for pngs.

encode

All the magic happens here.

Examples

var de = new DirectoryEncoder( source, destinationCSSFile, {
			pngfolder: pngfolder, //in case you need to link out for PNGs, like when the datauri is way too long
			customselectors: { "foo": [".bar", ".baz"]}, 
			template: template.hbs, //template in handlebars, FANCY!
			noencodepng: false // turn this to true if you want no datauris for pngs, just links out to png files
		});
de.encode(); // "Guitar solo -- File outputted"

Contributing

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
